The Interfaith Roundtable of Kauai leadership and some members of their congregations visited this morning for a temple tour and to get some inspiration from Satguru Bodhinatha.
Bodhinatha shared about how local Island School students and other groups visit us regularly for tours and to learn a bit about Hinduism, and he told about the recent interfaith panel discussion in Texas. Many good questions were then asked by the group, such as understanding the difference between a religious and spiritual leader.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
